Skinny Fresh Jumble-berry Pie

What am I reading now?  The Secret (Taryn A. Taylor)

Annnd . . . what do I think so far?  Seventeen-year-old Delanie Hart has a past she wants to keep hidden. Moving to a new state and attending a new high school seems to be just the thing — until she accidentally sees a mark exactly like her own. When the people she is running from come after her, Lanie is left with a choice — give up what she wants or save her friends.

Here's the book trailer:

April's recipe is for Skinny, Fresh Jumble-berry pie that is lower on carbs than many.

And here are the secret ingredients.
It's easy. Begin with a purchased graham cracker crust.
Make a glaze for the berries:
Mix together 1 package (the kind that usually makes 2-quarts of drink) of Raspberry Lemonade Crystal Light, 1 cup water, and 2 tablespoons corn starch. Boil and let it thicken. Chill and stir now and again until it reaches room temperature.

Meanwhile, Mix together 2 cups nonfat milk and 2 packages instant (sugar free, fat free) white chocolate pudding mix. Pour into the crust and chill this too.

Cut up 8 large strawberries and stir together with 1/2 cup of each: blueberries, blackberries and raspberries. Mix into the cooled glaze and spoon atop the pudding. Chill again until you serve.

Doesn't The Secret sound fun? And yum for those berries!

You didn't really mention what you think about the book. Maybe you're in the early pages?
